Forest Row - UK
with Carol Thompson
and Teri West
6 - 11 July 2014
Emerson College, Forest Row

A light hearted playful week in the East Sussex countryside that will develop a sense of wellbeing and provide plenty of fun and laughter as you explore how the worlds of clowning and the practice of mindfulness connect.

Stopping, breathing and being fully present to each moment maybe the perfect companion on the path to meet your unique ‘clown within’. Your clown is the free, fun, spontaneous and playful part of you that copes with life without being concerned about getting it right or being clever, just as your ‘buddha-nature’ or awakened mind
accepts all as it is, without judging or comparing.

Through play, games and short improvisations, we will learn to let go of our need to be in control. Through practising mindful breathing, movement and deep listening we will develop the ability to live in the present moment - the only place where we are truly alive.
